1700 1st Street, NW

Since the spot is, seemingly, never not crowded I’ll go with – Boom! From a liquor license application:

“Applicant requests a Summer Garden Endorsement with 68 seats. Applicant also requests an expansion to the second floor, adding 60 seats for a Total Occupancy Load of 202 for the entire premises.”

Washington Business Journal reported that this Summer Garden seating will be on the rooftop.

I’m definitely going with – Boom!

    I hope they create another bar/counter upstairs. I really like Big Bear but avoid it often due to the long lines.

      I came here to post the same thing. They really need to increase service capacity if they keep expanding. The kitchen is tiny and can barely keep up with orders for breakfast sandwiches (something that should be easy to make) at the current capacity.

    I really wish we could bring our pups back on the patio :(

      Patio at Crisp is always dog friendly! Water bowls and treats provided too!
